These delicate flowers make a fragrant brew that is light-tasting, fruity and low in calories. The many benefits of rose tea are a result of the high concentrations of antioxidant vitamin C, vitamin A, polyphenols, as well as a bounty of other antioxidants. One teaspoon of rose hips has the equivalent amount of vitamin C in 6 oranges!
